Zenteno Hopp '17 publishes article from James Randall research

The Randall Fellowship gave me the opportunity to carry out an independent summer research project about the life and work of Adela Zamudio, one of Bolivia’s greatest 19th century poets. I chose to investigate about this poet because I have always been impressed by the power and beauty of her words, and because I had a strong urge to know more about the woman who had brought them to life.
